Laptop receiving message: No operating system found

Hello, I have a HP Pavilion dv6449us laptop.  It is under 2 months old.  Recently I spilled Gatorade on my desk while the laptop was running, I did not notice the spill for some time.  Upon my discovery I powered down the machine and cleaned up the spill.  When I powered the machine back on, the HP symbol was there, then a black screen appeared with the words "No operating system found."  I could not get any keys to respond other than the power switch and crl, alt, delete to reboot the machine.  When rebooting the same cycle would appear.


Would you have any suggestions? 

 

I can select F10 on the boot-up process and have tried to run a diagnosis on the hard drive but the same message presented itself 'no operating system found'.


Thank you.

The same thing happened to me. sadly i called the hp hotline and they informed me that i had no hard drive left. they suggested bringing it to best buy's data recovery halp desk or sending it to the company on warranty.

    I had sony vaio and did the same thing like yours, but I pushed the ALT, CTRL and DELETE for a 2 seconds and it came back to normal way...I guess I was only lucky that time.

That error usually indicates one of two things, your file system is corrupt and the master boot record or partition tables have corrupted.... or, in light of a liquid being spilled, some possibly got into the laptop.

I'm not sure right off the top of my head, but I think the hard drive has an access door on the bottom. Which you can remove a couple screws to remove the cover. I would visually inspect under that cover, and other covers if any while your at it, to check for any signs that liquid got in it.

    Also, a quick check... When the HP logo comes up, enter the Setup. I think you hit F1 or F2. Enter the bios, and see if the computer is even seeing the hard drive for starters. ;)

This could be a variety of different problems. Could be your battery failing or even something overheating in your computer. Have you ever had someone open and clean out your laptop?

Your laptop is getting HOT because the cooling fan may not be cooling the processor. All it takes is about 15 seconds to overheat the processor. Need to get it serviced.

I have a Hewlet Parkard desk top that bleeps


dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 recall I have an out of warranty dv9000 and haven't had wireless for months. I just discovered HP issued a recall for the wireless and other problems with several different Pavilion and Presario models. For the wireless problem with the dv9000 they are replacing the motherboard on all notebooks in or out of warranty. I was wondering if anyone has had the repair done under the recall and how it turned out? I'm also wondering if HP is still cosmetically trashing notebooks when they are sent in for repair?
Here is the link for the recall:

3 keys (G, H, and backspace)on HP pavilion DV6449US notebook don't work.


Try resetting the keyboard by taking the bezel and keyboard out and unplugging it from the mainboard. If that don't work then you probably need a new keyboard. Try using a usb keyboard.
